Description:

I Had The Craziest Dream was another big hit for the Harry James Orchestra, in his 'band that swings with strings' period. It is a romantic, floaty ballad, sung by Helen Forrest, and which also features a James' trademark trumpet solo. This chart was originally recorded with big band plus string section, and some additional orchestral backing. We have modified the arrangement by removing the strings and extra instruments, to make it suitable for a standard 5,4,4,4 line-up. Therefore both Alto Saxes double Clarinet, and the French Horn solo lines have been re-assigned to Trombone 1, with an upper range of high C. Harry James' solo is written out in full. The vocal key is Ab.
